    Back in March I suggested to my Boss and the owner of the company that we start setting quarterly marketing plans with hopes of setting a yearly marketing plan as of OCT 1st (the beginning of our new fiscal year)

    to accomplish this we have a big meeting 1 month before the beginning of each quarter to go over what we've done/are doing for that quarter, what we want/need to accomplish the next quarter and our tentative plans for the qtr after that.

    In this meeting the owner refuses to stay on track with the agenda and continues to go off about his "idea he had this weekend" and wants to get it done now. A few weeks ago we had one of these meetings and we were eventually able to get things planned out (with me being the only designer, web guy, photographer, marketing, advertising, copywriting, misc guy here it's very beneficial to have things planned out. Because of a lot of things my schedule is essentially jammed through the next week or so. I then get this email today from the owner.

    (i've copied and pasted so the professional grammar is his)

    "we've have to take out a 4x4 or 4x8 ad in XXXXXXXX magazine and the art needs to be into them by the 10th, we should meet around the 6th or earlier and talk about what we'd want to do with it"

    AGHGHHGHGHG!!!!! sorry, it's been a bad day so far, so I just needed to vent.
    You see, whenever I start feeling sick, I just stop being sick and be awesome instead. True story.

            I'm not sure I fully understand the assertions made in that post, but for certain, changing the Document Color Mode in Illustrator doesn't change the colors of anything that's already on the artboard....

            Just a reminder here that this post by Key was made over 13 years ago, during the boom before the bust.
            Times (and prices) have changed a lot in that time.

            About the worst thing you can do with Illustrator is use the Color Mode to change stuff after starting your design.
            ALWAYS select your document color mode before you begin using Illustrator. Changing...
